New Paint Job

I finished my new paint job yesterday, still have to cut and buff and I only had my cell phone, but I figured I would put a couple of pictures up. Yes, I know there are a lot of green haters out there, but I just had to stick with a version of green. Just wanted to say thanks to
BD's Cycles. The tip sheet that he put out a few years ago about filling the tank seam was quit helpful. After completeing this project it gives me a new appreciation for the work that he does day in and day out. As soon as I get the tins back on the bike I'll post a couple of complete pictures.

Thanks 1bad, I started out wanting something different and unique, I think I achieved it. Obviously not for everyone, but I like it. Lots of work but gratifying. Now if I can get it all back on the bike without scratching it!!!

Hey bro, I don't know about you but I think your tins look like they fell into a barrel of toxic waste.

And they look frickin awesome ! Great original look.

That does look awesome. I'm a huge fan of marbelizer.

Any chance you have a link to that tip sheet?
